WHERE DOES REGEN18 TAKE PLACE?
The gathering takes place in San Francisco’s beautiful Mission District, centered around Impact Hub San Francisco. Impact Hub ensures that our community and programming reflect the diversity of the Mission, support engagement with the traditional working-class residents of the Mission, and contribute to the economic opportunities and stabilization of its residents and culture. These values are reflected in the attendees, vendors, and venues of ReGen18. While participating in the gathering, we hope that you explore the community, speak with residents, and recognize your own contribution to fostering a diverse economy that works for everyone.

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE FOR REGEN18?
As the venues are a short walk away from each other, so please plan on wearing comfortable shoes and clothing. The weather in early May can still be windy in the afternoon, so we recommend you dress in layers.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET TO REGEN18?
**If you are using Google Maps or a car service (in particular Uber) to arrive at Impact Hub, enter the street address (1885 Mission Street) rather than “Impact Hub San Francisco.”
There is limited metered parking on surrounding streets, and a public garage on Hoff Street. In addition, there is evening paid parking in the lots of Mission Bank on the corner of Julian and 16th. There is also paid parking on 14th Street (one at the corner of 14th & Mission and one between Valencia and Mission.) Whenever you park anywhere in San Francisco, whether street parking, paid parking lot or parking structure, make sure NOT to leave any belongings in plain view. Lock your valuables in your trunk before you arrive at your destination.
DO YOU HAVE ANY RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATIONS?
Gracias Madre (2211 Mission Street) who believes that, “the emphasis we place on the sourcing of our food will bring consciousness in the community to the importance of sustainability and of buying and selling locally grown organic food.”
The Perennial (59 Ninth Street), a gourmet restaurant that “supports regenerative agriculture in several ways. We bake bread daily made with a regenerative perennial grain, we butcher in-house as part of a climate beneficial nose-to-tail meat program, and we operate an aquaponic greenhouse to utilize food waste and explore the culinary potential of urban farming.”
Please consider patronizing these regenerative restaurants.
